Project description

English EN

Technology has changed how we get our news

The internet has dramatically changed how information is shared and consumed. People no longer gather around the TV to watch the evening news or anxiously wait for the morning edition of newspapers. The EU-funded MIRAGE project will investigate the impact of the internet on media independence and content quality. It will examine the extent Google search results are tailored to users’ political views and whether personalised results increase ideological polarisation. The project will also examine how advertising impacts what issues are reported. Overall, the findings will furnish media experts with insight into how the industry is transforming and what it means for the quality of democracy.
